6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes Micronesia

Micronesia 6.1 May 14May 2014 PACIFIC – A strong earthquake in the South Pacific did not generate a Pacific-wide tsunami, officials in Hawaii said Wednesday. The quake, with an estimated magnitude of 6.1, was centered about 61 miles south southeast of Ifalik in the Federated States of Micronesia and about 481 miles south of Hagatna, Guam, at a depth of about 6 miles. It struck at about 10:56 a.m. in Hawaii, or 8:56 p.m. in Micronesia. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Ewa Beach said the quake did not pose a tsunami threat to Hawaii. However, an earthquake of this size could have generated a local tsunami that can be destructive along nearby coasts. There have been no initial reports of any waves generated or damage or injuries. –Star Advertiser
